'What Would You Do?'

ABC serves a dual role in its position as 'stalwart member of the legacy media'. It enjoys: (a) torturing random citizens while (b) promoting socialized medicine. Its efforts are best exemplified by a recurring feature called 'What Would You Do?'

A recent show asks "Would You Help a Sick Stranger Get Meds?":

As more than 47 million Americans struggle without insurance and more than a third of the country not able to fill prescriptions because of the cost, ABC News wondered if anyone would come to their aid.

So, "What Would You Do?" rigged a local pharmacy in Morristown, N.J., with hidden cameras and microphones to determine if a nation divided on public health would intervene in private care to help a stranger in need.

Actors were hired to portray a very real health dilemma -- acting as customers who couldn't afford their medications...

Never mind that American taxpayers already pay for Medicaid, SCHIP, Medicare Parts-Whatever, and heaven knows what else... never mind all that! ABC is compelled to run infomercials for Reidcare!

As an aside, I thought of my own episode of "What would you do?":

Comment away with your answers.

Well, given option A or B, I would take pepto bismal and immodium AD.

But that's just me.

Do I have to choose between A and B? Could you not offer at least one more? Let's say C is the option to shave my nuts with a weedeater.
I'll take C, twice a day, if necessary.

Choices? What between the reincarnation of Night of The Living Dead and KSM in drag?
